Hi Amit,
Welcome to HCM.
One of the symptoms of liver disease is lack of appetite. I think you should again consult your doctor, and on examination if he thinks it necessary he will advise ultrasound examination along with other blood and urine tests to arrive at a diagnosis and treat you accordingly.

Hi Amit, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Are you on any kind of Medications? You are suffering from Anorexia which is Loss of Appetite which is common if you are ill. Kindly get yourself examined by a Physician to rule out of you have any underlying medical illness. Sadness, depression, grief, or anxiety can also cause this. Increase protein and calorie intake by eating high calorie nutritious snacks or several small meals during the day. Liquid protein drinks may be helpful. The protein rich foods include fresh fruits, Green leafy vegetables, eggs, chicken, fish, milk, lentils etc. Exercise regularly and avoid stress. Follow these steps for a week, your appetite should improve if you don't have any major illness. These steps should increase your appetite. If not get a Ultrasound scan, Complete blood count, thyroid function tests, kidney function tests.

Wish you Good Health, Take Care.

Dear Amit,
Excess of fatty food intake can cause temporary lack of appetite, but since you have past history of liver abscess, it is always better to consult a doctor rather than trying to treat it yourself.

Amit avoid fatty food. Sugar and B-complex vitamins are good for liver, so you can have sweets. If symptoms persist, do not wait to reach Nagpur, but consult a local doctor.

My brother is detected with liver abscess on right lobe. He is being treated with ciprofloxacin IV fluids and a tube is insrted to ensure the drainage of abscess around one week ago. Some pus in red color is collected for two days abd after that fluid stopped coming. But doctor says it has to come and we will have to wait. They said it is in solid state and it may take some time and we will have to wait. Now they stopped giving antibiotics through IV fluids and giving the tablets. Please let us know if the same treatment has to be continued or should we shift the Hospital.

would it be prudent to test liver function (blood test) -- given Lipase has been trending upwards (just above normal) Amylase trending lower (although in range), vitamin D -- low requested to take supplements, and EUS performed was normal. I m thinking these results could be related to liver, am I on the right track?
